The purpose of the Sustainability Committee is to recommend to the Board on the development and articulation of CFA UK’s position on sustainability in a way that serves the members, the investment profession, and society. The committee is working to identify the practical steps CFA UK should take in relation to that positioning and the resource required to undertake the activities. The committee’s key upcoming deliverables are:

  3. Map CFA UK sustainability activity to the UN Sustainable Development Goals
  4. Communicate externally with members and wider society
  5. Communicate internally with CFA UK staff

The current make-up of the Committee is a mixture of current and former members of the CFA UK Board. The Committee is now seeking additional members who have the time, determination and skill to drive forwards the deliverables. The committee are open to applications from those new to volunteering and to CFA UK membership where the applicants are passionate and committed.
